Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry: Combining Treatments For Beautiful Smiles

Comprehensive Cosmetic Dentistry

Dentistry has two main goals when it comes to the teeth: to make them both functional  and beautiful. A person really needs both to be completely satisfied with their smile. In order to achieve these two very different goals, a dentist needs to combine a variety of treatments together. Dr Tripp takes this comprehensive approach with every patient who walks through our doors.

Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry

In order for a smile to be considered functional, it needs to allow a patient to eat and speak with complete comfort and confidence. Problems usually arise when a patient develops a cavity or suffers dental trauma, and when they do, Dr. Tripp can repair the teeth using a range of treatments called restorative dentistry.

And, if a patient has cosmetic issues with their smile such as stained, chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth, he can use (you guessed it) cosmetic dentistry to give them a beautifully uniform smile.

Jaw Alignment and Cosmetic Dentistry

Of course, there is one factor in the mouth that connects both of these treatments: the jaw. If the jaw is not properly aligned, it can make it very difficult for a person to eat and speak normally, and this can also drastically affect the appearance of the smile.

This is why, when treating a patient, we always make it a special point to ensure that their bite is well-balanced and properly aligned. With this all-inclusive approach to dental care, Dr. Tripp combines both restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments to give a patient the best possible results. When the jaw is properly aligned, the teeth are structurally sound, and the smile is aesthetically pleasing, you get a very happy patient!
